|What is Cthugha ???
||Cthugha is a program that listens to
sound and displays graphics. It is sort
of like an oscilliscope, but a lot
cooler; the graphics Cthugha displays
have flame effects, changing colors, and
an alomst endless combination of
attributes. Its sort of an interactive
multimedia thing, at least it is
interacting with the music.
Cthugha was a PC-DOS program, but the new
version is designed to take advangaes in
Windows graphics. This new version is
still being developed, but that shouldn't
stop you from checking it out!
New in this version:
- Cthugha is now a native Win95
- Cthugha should support all sound
cards and graphics cards
- High Res (640x480) and possibly
- Midi support (tired of CD's ??)
- New modes
- Smooth palette changes
- plus more!

24th 2001 What
should I do with Cthugha???
||I've decided I must finally admit to myself that I
no longer have the time to work on Cthugha. It's been
several years since the last update - and I lost all
of last years work in a bungled HD backup that lost
the source, the backup, and the new backup (on 2
seperate HD's... don't ask)
Anyway, I'm thinking that I should just release the
source to the Win32 version (perhaps through www.sourceforge.org
) and let you guys do something with it...
If you have an opinion on this, please let me
24th 2000 No news is... well... no news :)
||I've started thinking about the new version of
Cthugha - and have made some commitments to build a
special version for someone, so I *should* have
something ready at the end of April. This will
still be a beta, since I'm just not happy enough with
it to call it anything else.
Meantime, to save my mailbox from being
overwhelmed, I've created a Forum
here that people can discuss Cthugha (and my other
BTW, Cthugha didn't make the shortlist for the
Slashdot awards :-(
*did* make it into the Internet Film Festival !
|Jan 4th 2000 Nominate Cthugha for a SlashDot award
||Ok, its been a long time since I've updated
things... I promise I'm going to start work on a
new Cthugha soon...
Until then, why not nominate Cthugha for a Slashdot
award. There is a category for 'BEST EYECANDY'
(for Unix), and I feel that Cthugha is worthy of
nomination (Cthugha runs on Linux, Dos, Windows, Mac,
If you feel the same way, visit http://slashdot.org/index.pl?section=awards
and nominate Cthugha in the BEST EYECANDY
Who knows, if it wins I might even get the new
version done sooner (sounds like blackmail to me!)

|April 15th 1999 StarLego Released, a
new Cthugha in the works
||I've released a movie that a friend
and I made back in 1990/1991 - it's a

StarLego page !

I'm slowly working on a new version of
Cthugha - but my real-life job is slowing
things down. For now, grab the current
version from the downloads
|October 26th, 1998 Cthugha 0.6 released!!
||A new build is finally available! It
is only a program-file update, so you
still need the old data files present.
Hopefully this indicates the start of a
new series of updates!
includes code for standard 2D Cthugha,
and 3Dfx-based 3D Cthugha. Rush to the downloads page
The Cthugha Development site has moved
to new digs on www.torps.com.
Along with the move comes the first
update in ages. There is a new version in
the works, but no firm promise for when
it might arrive.
Meanwhile the logo has
been revamped. Anyone like it? Here is a
small version of it for links:
Have a look around the mildly
rennovated site and let us know what you
think of it, and what you'd like to see
